Babington Student Scores 6th Highest in the World: CIMA Exam

Posted by: Jennifer Bramley Post Date: 20th August 2020

Babington are over the moon to announce that one of our Level 7 Accountancy Professional (CIMA) learners, Emma Cartwright, has just scored the joint 6th highest score in the world for her CIMA Operational Case Study Exam!

Emma, who is a Trainee Finance Analyst at NG Bailey took the exam in May and has just received her fantastic results. This is an absolutely incredible achievement and really demonstrates the hard work and effort that Emma has put into her studies.

Emma’s Tutors at Babington had this to say about the news:

“Emma has been dedicated throughout her studies with us, she completes all work that is given to her and attends and participates actively in every session. She is also a lovely person to top it off. I am really pleased and very proud of her.” – Richard Smith

‘I have had the pleasure of teaching Emma, both in a classroom and on web-ex, she is always friendly, personable and polite. It is a pleasure to teach her because she has always put in the work before the boot camps and she always knows her stuff, sometimes in the classrooms, she would help other students with their answers, if she ever decided that she wanted to go into teaching accounts she would be very good, I imagine she will have a wide choice of roles once she is qualified.’ – Julie Hartley

When we asked Emma about her incredible accomplishment, she commented:

“I’m absolutely thrilled with my result. When I saw my score on results day I was surprised but very pleased and satisfied that all my hard work paid off, and I’m even more surprised and pleased to find out I placed joint sixth in the world!

I actually found it very difficult to tell how the exam went at the time because it was the first written exam I’d done, but I’d put a lot of time and effort into studying for it so it was a relief to see that my efforts paid off. I will definitely feel more confident next time.

I feel I achieved this through a combination of hard work, as I put a lot of time and effort into preparing for this exam, but also through the outstanding tutoring, I’ve received from Babington from day one! My colleagues at NG Bailey have also been extremely supportive which has helped me with my studies too.”

We hope that Emma is just as proud of her achievement as we all are here at Babington. Congratulations!
